AideRSS Adds Twitter and OpenID To Their PostRank Ranking Service
AideRSS is a new service that has created a new way to rank stories that are in RSS feeds. Their new way is called PostRank and combines many of the social services together to form a score for each post within a feed. ReadWriteWeb has a good overview of how AideRSS works.
The idea is interesting and innovative but it clearly skews towards the largest blogs. The larger blogs have a better chance to get more saves on delicious, more chance of getting on Digg, etc. I’d like to see more discovery within the service.
Today AideRSS is announcing Twitter link integration. Now AideRSS will scan Twitter and add links inside of tweets into their PostRank count. They will also display number of tweeted URLs as a metric.
They are also announcing OpenID support for login authentication.
